His Holiness Abune Paulos’s monument erected at the gate of Bolle Medhanialem church is creating a big fuss in the capital. Nearly all newspapers/magazines covered this issue in great details, though the majority in negative highlights. Most of Addis Ababans I interviewed are also against this monument. I’m not sure whether it is due to the negative reporting or just people didn’t buy it. However, it is not popular in town at all.

 

I’ll try to post more articles in this regard. (Ben)
